Acquisition[edit | edit source]

Charcoal Kiln is available after finishing research Charcoal Kiln (Technology), then it can be built from Resources tab.

Consumes 70 Wood/10h to produce 210 Coal/10h.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

One Charcoal Kiln requires one Sawmill for a stable supply of wood. Kilns only require 5 employees and the efficiency upgrades are relatively large. Later in the game a Kiln-based coal economy requires wall drills to keep up with the excessive demand of wood, but frees up a lot of employees.
